Bad Monkey by Carl Hiaasen
Bad Monkey

Annelle, August 4, 2013

'Bad Monkey,' is Hiaasen at his best! South Florida.We meet, Andrew Yancy, a former and disgraced sheriff’s detective, who after an unfortunate incident has been demoted to restaurant inspector of Monroe County (unofficially), where the owners will bribe him to keep their establishments open, but becomes a great weight loss plan for him. Yancy is pulled into a murder when he unexpectedly is given a full left arm to keep in his freezer. Where it will sit next to his purple popsicles, which will become the only thing that Yancy will touch after finding cockroaches next to the shrimp. This is the beginning of Yancy and how he tries to wedge his way back into the good graces of the Monroe County Sheriff’s office.

Light and Shade: Conversations with Jimmy Page by Brad Tolinski
Light and Shade: Conversations with Jimmy Page

Annelle, December 25, 2012

I just finished this and am wanting more! Am a huge Led Zeppelin fan since my days in high schools and love reading anything and everything that deals with not only their music, but the four amazing musicians who made up this larger than life group! As the title suggests, it's about Page, but there are conversations with not only Jonesy, but Jeff Beck and Paul Rodgers from Bad Company! This book will make you want to crank up the entire Zep catalog starting with, 'Good Times, Bad Times,' and continue on the 'Stairway....'

Battleborn by Claire Vaye Watkins

Annelle, August 3, 2012

this little gem arrived in my Indispensable along with The Book of Jonas. was unsure about this book, but the stories won me over. Am not a reader of short stories, but LOVED this little collection of stories. Watkins's home state of Nevada plays a huge part of these stories, almost a character along with the others in the stories. this little gem made me want to read more short stories. read this people and you will fall in love with the stories of Claire Vaye Watkins!
